This is just an observation I've made over the last couple of months . . . It seems every week you introduce a few more subscribers but the bottom line never seems to change: "We now have 1,269 subscribers". Are we really losing as many as we are gaining each week?
Well, subscribers come and go for a number of reasons. Mostly, we lose subscribers because of too many bounced emails to their address. This can happen when someone switches to a new email address. Often people will resubscribe at their new address but forget (or not bother) to remove their old address. So the system purges the old address after getting too many bounces. Sometime people explicitly unsubscribe, but that's fairly rare - most new subscribers remain indefinitely. So you numbers go up and down, but over time the trend has always been upwards, and this week is more typical than recent weeks have been.
Among our new subscribers this week are

Welcome aboard! We now have 1,270 subscribers.
Last week I made a mistake composing George Kolbe's ad: the illustration of Flanagan's 1933 $20 photo is not part of the Green album lot. Sorry!
And thanks again to John Salyer for assisting with images this week.
This week we open with some NBS news - the latest edition of our print journal will soon be arriving in member's mailboxes. In numismatic literature auction news, George Kolbe provided information on the Stack Family Library sale, and Hadrien Rambach sells selections from his library in a December 8th Paris sale.
There's yet more on numismatic literature this week - a new update to Martin Gengerke's book on American Numismatic Auctions, a book project on Roman portrait coins, and a new review of Newton and the Counterfeiter.
To learn about Obama's Challenge Coin, Warhol's $43 million silkscreen and How to Use a Book, read on.
